AT 43 giving it large

One of the Systems I enjoy playing is AT 43, from the now defunked Rackham. It was a sad day when Rackham announced it was to call it a day, especially as I have lots of thier minis from 3 factions, Cogs, Therians, and UNA.
 Last Sunday myself and maurice arranged a big game with a few rule ammendments to try for the bigger format. Usually the game is played with one force, and one command, but this game involved over 5000 pts and was split into 3 companies per side. Each army needed to have a rank 5 leader as theforce commander, and other subordinate commanders to lead each company. The force commander would bid for initiative as usual, then would allocate Leadership points between the 3 commands. Each command would then organise the unit order of play activation as usual. Each side would activate a unit from each company, and then the other side would have thier turn.
maurice considers his move for the Red Blok. We had VP for 3 objectives on the table, scoring 2 VP per objective, 1 VP per enemy unit eliminated, and 1VP for eliminating the force commander.

My Cog Commander , G Nocrat G09, accompanied by a squad of Stalkers, race to capture the central objective, flanked by a Warmonger Jammer team.

Warmonger team take position on the left flank

Massed Cog armour on the other flank lead by a Vandal, and 3 squads of 2 Marauders
Red Blok Dotch Yaga and supporting walkers,and RPG Soldaty, take a dominant position in the Redblock line. The game whent well and I think benefit from not using standard Force organisations, and maybe having a player commanding each company, We will see if another game can be played to this scale again soon.
